mouse cursor jumps while typing
I have an annoying problem. when i am typing using openoffice, emails in firefox, abiword, whatever, the mouse cursor will suddenly jump to where the mouse pointer is actually located on the screen. so, as i type and the screen scrolls down the mouse cursor will eventually jump back to where the mouse pointer is locate on the screen. I am using slack 12 with kde 3.5. However, this occurs when i switch to enlightenment or any other window manager. My machine is an acer aspire 5610 laptop. I am using kernel 18.104.22.168. I have a touchpad and am using synaptics .14.6. any help will be appreciated. it is more than inadvertent touching of the mouse touchpad. this never occurs while I am using windows.
